40 National Coordinators share their ideas & plans for FoPD 2024


Two recent online roundtable sessions with around 40 National Coordinators from across the globe provided an ideal forum in which to exchange ideas and plans for Fascination of Plants Day 2024. First time FoPD participants and experienced National Coordinators came together to present their plans for events, ideas for promoting FoPD in their countries and advice for addressing any challenges ahead. It was underlined that, although the official Fascination of Plants Day is 18th May, events can still be organised at any time from 1st March to 30th November. Ideas circulated for interactive games with school children, book fairs, experiments on extracting the DNA from fruit, nature walks, urban farm projects, cultural and artistic events about plants, open days at botanical gardens, plant science research institutes and universities and many more. We are delighted to note that events are already beginning to be uploaded onto the country pages of the website and we await with anticipation #PlantDay and this seventh edition of the global celebration of plants!
